I don;t know where you are, but herring, mackerel, dover sole, flounder, plaice, cod, halibut etc are all brilliant and delicious. I don't think it is possible to overeat fish so enjoy! And don't forget to eat some shellfish - super healthy too. (more)

Animals don't store toxins in their fat, fat simply tends to accumulate fat-soluble compounds. Important difference.

Try macadamia nut oil, and you'll never need a seed oil ever again. It's the most delicious thing ever, and it's high in monounsaturated fats much like olive oil. Mac is the new olive.

I personally peel them all the time. Chlorpropham or not, most tubers have all their natural toxins in the skin. If they aren't a staple, eating the skin once in a while won't be too much of a problem if they are organic.
